Turned down for credit unfairly? Appeal to the company involved

You have the option to appeal to a company which has turned down your application for credit if you feel the rejection is unfair. In the event that the decision was made by an automated system, you can ask for it to be reviewed.

If this approach does not work, don't immediately apply for similar credit from another company as you may make the situation worse in terms of your credit score. You should instead check your credit file, take any necessary steps to improve your credit score and leave it at least 3 months before you approach another lender.

Offset Mortgage

With any form of offset mortgage the applicant normally has a linked account which bears interest and this interest is offset against the interest payable on their mortgage loan, making repayments cost less.

The flip side is that interest rates charged on these mortgages may be higher than normal and, of course, the income from interest on the linked account can no longer be used for any other purpose.

Taunton Mortgage Broker Insider Tips

Consider booking your searches as soon as you have an offer accepted

If you're buying a property with a mortgage, your lender will normally expect you to book four standard property searches (local authority, environmental, chancel indemnity and drainage) and you are advised to get searches anyway so you have as much information on your property as possible.

Although you could choose to delay getting your searches to space out your conveyancing-related payments, you are more likely to save time on your conveyancing if you do not.

Your solicitor needs the information detailed in the searches as part of their extensive checks on the property you're looking to buy. As soon as they have this, the quicker they can carry these out and the sooner you'll be able to exchange contracts with the vendor, all going well.

Should you or the vendor choose to pull out of the sale for any reason, the searches can be sold on to any other prospective buyer of the property in question.
